'story ol II is Lire.
An event that will not only attract
a large amount of local interest, but
will also be of national note, will be
celebrated in Chicago in the near
future. It will be the uniting in
marriage of Eagle Eye, a three
quarter blood Ogalalla Sioux Indian,
to iiite a well known and respect-,
able young lady of t his city. The
affair which is of course of a some
what romantic turn will attract wide
spread interest not only on that ac
count, but also from the fact that
Eagle Eye will le tin- second man of
his tribe ever united to a white
woman, thcotlic!' marriage boinjjthat
of Ir. Eastman, who is a first cousin
to Eagle Eye. to a y-'ung lady of
Boston, and which created so much
talk at the time.
Tin y Met l.:t Summer.
The beginning of this rather ro.
mantic a (fair occurred last summer,
when the prospective young groom
was traveling with th Kickapoo In
dian Medicine company, which made
a few weeks' stay here. They met 1 v
chanee, but as is often the case a
genuine love affair sprang up. and be
fore 1 he company lett the city the
young man had determined that lie
should return and claim his bride.
Since then '.he has made more than
one trip to the city with th" result
that ere tnanv weeks the happv cere
mony that unites them will have
been performed in Chicago by llev.
Father Crofton, a missionary once
stationed at the Tine Ki.lge. S. 1)..
agency, where the young Sioux re
ceived his lirst teachings in the lan
guage of the white's. After their
marri:ge they will return and mak
this city their home, where the
groom will establish hhnseli in the
min :i fact ore of Indian medicines.
A t reillt to lli-l !:!:.
Eagle Eye is a we!! built, pleasant
appearing young man of good ad
dress, not at a!! bad looking, and i
ambitious become a b isines man.
Ik- was born at lln' Tiiu' Midge. S. 1)..
agency 21 years ago. His father was
a sub chief and was killed in the
Custer mrssacre. At the age of '.)
he was sent with others to the Indian
school at Carlvslc. Fa., after finish
ing at which, he attended the Indian
school at Philadelphia and also St.
Anthony's Mission at Eos Angeles.
Cal. After finishing his studies he
returned to the reservation and later
was taken by BtitTalo Bill on his
European tonr visiting the principal
cities across the seas, afterward re
turning in time to act as scout and
interpreter during the recent out
break at Pine Ridge agency. Eagle
Eve since then has been in the em
ploy of the Kickapoo Medicine com
pany and was for a time employed
in the otlice of the company at 117
West Van Buren street Chicago. He
writes a tine ham! and like many
others of his race he ts a, natural
artist though he has never given
much attention to the latter.
The Weddlne; Soon to Oeenr
Eagle Eye is the only member of
his family" that is educated. He has
two brothers older than himself with
the Buffalo Bill show, neither of
whom can speak English. His
mother at tirst objected to his giving
up the manners and customs of his
father, but since finding that he has
progressed so far in the ways of the
whites she has also become enthusi
astic and a short time ago sent the
two younger sisters and a younger
brother back east, where they are
now also receiving an education.
The young lady's parents made soiv.e
objections at lirst, but since under
standing the matter, have demurred
no further and the consummation of
the happy event will probably occur
in a short time after Julv 4.

Ir. V. I Kinyon and F. M. Sinnet Elected
The result of yesterday's school
election was tkat Dr. C. 1$. kinyon
and F. M. Sinnet were duly chosen
members of the board of education to
succeed Dr. C. Bernhardt and D. J.
Sears, whose terms expire. The
election was significant in two ways.
First, that the A. P. A. organization
which dictated the candidates had ab
solute sway at the polls, and despite
the numerous scares gotten up dur
ing the day by. its members, tiiat
still hunts were being conducted in
order to defeat the aspirations of the
society to control the school system
of Hock Island, the returns at the
elose of the day indicated that
what opposition appeared took the
form of a scattering vote, there be
ing no systematic or organized ef
fort to defeat the A. P. A. candidates.
Second, the women turned out
their full strength, in fact,
made it the occasion to develop their
full vote and succeeded in getting
out at least a third of the total num
ber cast. The total was l.o'.l. of
which were east bv the women.
The total was not half that of a year
ago. when :?.'jsr were east, half of
which it is estimated were east by
women. These facts demonstrate
that with the advantages offered yes.
terday in the way of a voting place
inVach ward, the candidates of the
A. P. A. could have been defeated
easilv had not the majority of repre
sentative citizens viewed theattilude
of the A. P. A. organization with dis
gust and ignored the election in con
sequence. The elect hut of Dr. Kin
yon and Mr. Sittnet therefore, may
be attributed entirclv to the endorse
ment of the A. P. A. society, which
threw its strength in their favor.
The- total vote was 1..V.IS. Dr.
Kinyon received 1. .": votes and

the twelfth annual commencement
exercises of that institution. The
hall had been tastilv decorated for
the occasion, and a lengthy program

manner. Owing to the interest man
ifested by friends of the pupils, a
